The Miami Museum of Ice Cream is as Pink as you imagine

What is this place? Its the Museum of Ice Cream. I had no idea what to expect before walking into the Museum of Ice Cream. As soon as the door behind me closed all I could see was pink, like being inside a massive cotton candy ball.

Ok ok, here is what I want you to do.  Close your eyes, now imagine walking into a happy place, not just any place but a place you would read about in a children’s fantasy book. Are you there? Now paint it pink. Yes, its kind of like that. People smiling, kids laughing it is just a great time. Ok great, let’s walk through the place together.

With a massive grin on my face, I approach a fortune teller, and you guessed it, she is dressed in pink.  She asks me to pick a card, and after careful consideration, the card is chosen. Like a kid at a candy store, am full of joy and I listen as she reeds my fortune. I was kind of skeptical at first but I do not want to spoil this adventure for you but let’s just say she predicted everything correctly.

We make our way to the first room, where the sprinkle pool is. It is epic but a bit crowded. There are screaming children everywhere. We wait until everyone exits and we get our shots before the next group comes in.

The Museum of Ice Cream gets cooler as you start walking through the mase of pink.

The beautiful thing about the Museum of Icecream is that the fun never ends, they have ice cream in just about every corner, and every spot is a photo op. Let me rephrase that, is an incredible photo op, unlike any photo op out there.

We spent about 3 hours there and we could have spent a lot longer. Once you make it past the first room, the crowds start to dissipate and everyone starts to go at their own pace, some slower than others.

Cameras are allowed and you can click the day away in just about every corner. The entire staff is friendly and they go out of their way to help you get your perfect shot. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

The Museum of Icecream finishes at the rooftop of the building. A nice place to eat the last scoop of key lime pie ice cream while watching the sunset with an epic ocean view.

Here are some of the photos we shot. The model is Mercedes, you can follow her on Instagram. Scroll to the bottom of the post to watch the video.

THE GEAR

The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 14-24mm and a Nikon 24-85mm.  A MeFOTO tripod and a wide angle is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.

 

What’s your favorite photo? Can you guess mine?

Model Madness Recap

I hosted an awesome event over the weekend with my friend Sam. It was a great success, to say the least. Our goal was to have 30 photographers, and we hit our mark. The total was 30 photographers, 4 models, 4 lighting setups, and a few people helping out. The most important part is that we had plenty of space to be very comfortable.

As much as I wanted to shoot the models, well, I really couldn’t, I was working. I was trying to help people out individually, park cars, make sure the models did not need anything and well just trying to make sure thing ran smoothly. (between you and I, I have shot most of them before)

This larger events can be a bit tricky to navigate, however having done a fair share in my day, it was not a big deal. People were happy and some wanted to sign up to the next event on the spot. We are organizing something for Halloween. I will have something up on my Workshops Page.

Portraits with Jorge

I love hanging out with awesome people, meet Jorge, he is as awesome as it gets. We had an awesome portrait session. Jorge tried to tell me he has never done this before, however, I think he has done this once or twice before.

He is an awesome photographer and an amazing model. We started off taking some headshots and we quickly moved to the stool. I think the stool worked out great.

It’s always great working with such amazing talent.

I shot these photos with my Nikon D800 and my Nikon 24-70mm.

One more chance

Here is a video I shot a while back with my friend Natalia, its called one last chance because that is the name of the song. We went out to the beach to make a cool video from the sky and this is what we came up with. There is another one on the works… Check out the behind the scenes video at the bottom of the post.

Meet Natalia

I recently got together with my friend Natalia. We rocked out an amazing shoot. With her talent and a bit of camera work we made something special. This is one of the photos. I will have more up shortly along with a video we made.

Photo shoot with Moe Marks

I did a super fun shoot with my Friend Moe. It was so much fun, we went to the beach, rode my motorcycle and not only that but we made a Vlog!!!

I love getting together with creative people, it is so much fun to just rant about random stuff running through your head. Its crazy to think that there are people just as crazy as you out there! Check out some of the pics we shot and all the behind the scenes action in the video below!
